Cornillon Quentin – Print Your Guy


Chronological Encyclopedia of Discoveries in Space cover

After being in print for twenty years, the Chronological Encyclopedia of Discoveries in Space, covering everything that was learned on every single space mission in the 20th century, has finally gone out of print.

 
I presently have my last four hardback copies available for sale. The book sold new for about $90. To get your own autographed copy of this now rare collector's item, please send a $120 check (which includes shipping) payable to Robert Zimmerman to

"Useful to space buffs and generalists, comprehensive but readable, Bob Zimmerman's Encyclopedia belongs front and center on everyone's bookshelf." -- Mike Collins, Apollo 11 astronaut

 

"The Chronological Encylopedia of Discoveries in Space is no passionless compendium of information. Robert Zimmerman's fact-filled reports, which cover virtually every spacecraft or probe to have ventured into the heavens, relate the scientific and technical adventure of space exploration enthusiastically and with authority." -- American Scientist

An evening pause: Hat tip Jim Mallamace, who asks, “Ok guys, what would be your description on the order form?”

    Must be a chick thing.

    har…I hope it’s not exclusively a girl-thing! (have my daughter & g-daughter for a week, they outnumber me on X chromosome’s by 4 to 1)

    ..she gave up trying to find the perfect ‘print-your-guy,’ trashed her computer, and momentarily gave up. (some duct-tape on the monitor, a pint of ice-cream & some Lifetime Movies, and she’s back in business.) Then she ordered a ‘print-your-cat,’ and fell in love with the delivery boy.
    (they could have held on the package logo frame, a bit longer)

    pivoting:
    A love story in the world of nuts-n-bolts.
    Very steam-punk-y.

    I thought the best description would be: “Tall, Rich, Handsome, and Dangerous man who you will tame in six exciting steps!”

    I KNEW it was a chick flick thing.

    Then she ordered a ‘print-your-cat,’

    OK….that explains it. I just thought it was a last ‘Print Your Guy’ selection.

    I feel like Emily Litella.

    “Oh, that’s very different….Never mind”
